This was our 9th year to stay during the Tailhook Convention. We stayed in the East Tower which has been updated in the last few years. Since last year, there is now free and better Internet. There are no blue velvet bed covers in this tower. Our room was kept immaculately clean by Lucia, a lovely lady. Don't order Bloody... More

I had to stay here for a work trip. Two different colleagues had items (wallet and cell phone) stolen from their locked rooms. All of the restaurants had a very long wait to eat there and it was impossible to get lunch during my conference. Staff seemed overwhelmed and not very friendly. Rooms were outdated and all smelled like smoke.... More

This entire establishment was one of the worst places I have ever been. It is filthy and disgusting. The rooms are small and over priced. Our room smelled like we were standing in a porta-potty and the hallway wasn't any better. The elevators were always a long wait. The service was not good and the food served in the restaurants...

Great service, a lot of decent places to eat but rooms are showing wear and are ready for an update. Lower floor rooms get a fair amount of noise from either the highway or trains depending on which side you are on. We always have a great time there. The hotel has closed off some areas - clearly the casino... More

At first I was taken by surprise by the size of the room. Some of the feature seem to be signs of 10-15 year old decorations - an old CRT Tube tv??? Furniture is a little old. But the room is clean, comfortable and delightfully large! I got this place because for the weekday it was $47 a night. I... More

On our way on holiday to Ca we stayed here. We stayed on pet floor in west tower. When we arrived I went to get some tissues and after a few the box was empty. Ok no biggie. We put on the TV and could get no programs. Called reception and they said there was a problem with satellite but... More

The Nugget was a great hotel to stay at. The room was clean and comfortable, we even had a small loveseat in the room. The only complaint is not enough ventilation on the casino floor, since we were there for the rib cook off. Loved everything else at the casino and will return there next year in 2015.

Stayed here for the annual Rib Cookoff in 2014. The location as far as that is concerned is great - walking distance. The location as it relates to other activities in the Reno area is average - requires driving 5-15 minutes. The rooms are VERY dated but clean, with the exception of the recliner which was worn out and slightly... More
